Memtest Error


I have 2 memory sticks, one 4 GB another 2 GB.
I was doing a memtest before booting and find the attached errors.

Do I need to change my Memory stick ?

If you don't believe the memory test why would you believe us?

Try removing one and re-run the test, that way you know which one it is.

I'd think there is some issue with the ram. Dual channel may or may not report as a fail on single stick tests.

Could be almost any other part or setting too. Set bios to fail safe or default, reseat sticks, test cpu, check psu, check temps.
